  1. Rasher

    Rasher is a comic strip in the UK comic The Beano, featuring Dennis the Menace's pet pig Rasher. Early episodes of the strip also featured Rasher's family, such his brother Hamlet, his sister Virginia Ham, Uncle Crackling and Little Piglet, who were all introduced in the first episode. It was initially drawn by David Sutherland and, in its first iteration, ran from 1984 until 1988. Rasher had earlier made his first appearance in The Beano in issue 1920 in the Dennis the Menace and Gnasher strip. From issue 3480, older Rasher strips were reprinted in full colour in The Beano. Later they stopped, due to Dennis and Gnasher being revamped for their new TV series; Rasher was dropped outright in this series and seemingly replaced with a new pig called Harley, belonging to Dennis' Granny. Eventually, Rasher returned in Beano 3601, featuring in Dennis and Gnasher alongside Harley. Later, Rasher once again got a strip of his own as part of the "Funsize Funnies," drawn by Lew Stringer and starting in Beano 3660.
